Computers have influenced every sphere of human life. Life has become easier and comfortable with the use of computer. In the field of garment industry, computers help to design, analyse and manufacture the product within a short span of time. The first step of garment production is designing. The designers do hand sketches, or drape fabric in a dress form. CAD software has begun to make inroads into the world of fashion and textile industry, enable mass customization, develop more designs, and facilitate to make frequent changes in styles and production. Computer Aided designing software not only provides the possibility to speed up the process of putting a new model into production and improve the quality of the products, but also reduces material costs and labour intensity.

CAD is essentially an automated system for the design, drafting, display of graphically oriented information and also used in the manufacturing process for layouts. It makes the work easier through efficient use of softwares.
